i'm heading home today but i just wanted to share a quick sneak peek of what i'll be posting on thursday from my scad trip. this has, without a doubt, been the most inspiring design trip i have ever made. the students working here are creating pieces that have opened my mind and changed the way i think about the entire design process. i wish i could somehow transport all of you down here to see what's going on (you know, oprah style with plane tickets under your laptops)- these students' dedication to the craft and traditions of design have been such an amazing thing to see. i'll be sharing more student work tomorrow but i wanted to share this piece from susana cacho garcia- a gorgeous necklace make of fabric and swarovski crystals (as part of a swarovski-sponsored project). i could have stared at it for hours. after i saw susana's work i headed over to at home- a beautiful home shop in savannah where i picked up these gorgeous vintage handkerchiefs. i'm a sucker for little pieces like this. more to come tomorrow, today is my last day so i'm headed to shop scad and portfolio viewings at the fibers department. have a great day...[thanks so much to everyone who came to the lecture!]

This is something that should hang on a wall...I hope I will never see this on a living person.

Thank you so much for coming to Savannah! Your lecture was amazing, practical, and inspiring. Your feedback regarding my portfolio work and images was invaluable, and I thank you for taking the time out of your trip to look over it. I hope you enjoyed your trip to SCAD and Savannah. Don't be a stranger! Thanks again!

i'd be honored to be the first living person wearing this. it's certainly not a day to day piece but it's stunning.
